Media coverage of Fujitsu strike

Friday’s strike attracted significant media coverage.
Much of this is collated via LabourStart, some via Google News.
Saturday’s edition of the BBC’s flagship news programme, Today on Radio 4, included interviews of strikers and analysis of the dispute. The relevant section is about 1 hour and 14 minutes in.
The publicity is an important aspect of the campaign, putting pressure on Fujitsu’s senior management to negotiate a fair settlement to the dispute over Jobs, Pay and Pensions.
